This includes vouchers for food and beverages, communication services, and, if necessary, lodging facilities and transportation. You can claim them promptly at the airline's service counter at the airport; if the airline refuses to give you a voucher, simply go out and buy what you need — they will have to reimburse you for those costs (as long as they are reasonable).

You will not be entitled to flight compensation if your flight was delayed or cancelled due to an "extraordinary circumstance," because the airline must be at fault for the flight disruption in order to compensate passengers.
